Bring The Good Times Back‘s four songs are united by a single theme: rage.

The collection begins with the pointedly post-punk 1979, a howl of fury about generations of politicians who “sow poison instead of seeds” and “rip the heart from the state and the life from the towns”.

Carrie sings about a different kind of politics in the percussive, propulsive Loving Me Is A Political Act, where she articulates the fear that many LGBT+ people know all too well: that holding their loved one’s hand in public “will end as headlines”. The song becomes a proud, defiant love letter to the people whose “hearts are bigger than the sky.” It’s followed by the outsider anthem Battlecry, a rallying cry for the marginalised: “back us into a corner and we fight back.”

The collection ends with the devastating 72. Over haunting e-bow and rumbling bass Carrie skewers the officials responsible for the Grenfell Tower fire.

HAVR Glasgow, UK

HAVR make big music. It’s music born of love and of loss, of hope and of heartbreak, the sound of big hearts beating inside bruised bodies.

HAVR are Kenny Martin (bass), David Marshall (guitar) and Carrie Marshall (guitar/vocals).

Influenced by post-punk, pristine pop and power trios, Kenny, David and Carrie are having too much fun to stick to a single genre.
